    Does this help?

    Hello all,
    I commute to work on my bike and when I ride home it is 90's 100's.
    So I bought this to see if it will help. Found it at walmart in the workout exercise section. I got the ones that look like the red bandanna.

    $0.99 bandana works for me.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    I was thinking that the beads would soak up the sweat.

    I read the information and it said the crystals would soak up 200 times their weight in water . . . in a humid climate that means added weight to your head because of the reduced evaporation and in a low humidity weather it may work . . . then again how much weight is added before it starts cooling

    Bandanna or just a cotton towel I will use a microfiber towel in some cases

    Better than a cotton bandana are the various Coolmax/wicking poly skull caps.
